A new programme is being launched in Milton Keynes that will provide local employers and their staff with a range of travel benefits and services to help make commuting and business travel cheaper, easier and more sustainable.
The Smartgo Milton Keynes business travel network has been developed and co-ordinated by specialist sustainable travel consultancy, Go Travel Solutions with support from Milton Keynes Council and Volkswagen.
It will be launched to local businesses at a free event from 12-2.30pm on 24 February 2014 at DoubleTree (StadiumMK) in Milton Keynes.
